These are generally used in ‘Smile Make-Over’ cases, where aesthetics are the primary concern. A Veneer is made of a very thin layer of Porcelain that is bonded by an adhesive (Dental Glue) to a tooth, a little bit like a ‘false finger nail’.
Why Chose a Veneer?
A veneer is the least invasive way to change the colour, size or shape of a tooth.Veneers generally only involve the removal of minimal tooth substance (unlike a Crown which involves removing much more).
This type of treatment is a delicate balance between "Art and Dentistry".
If patients wish to transform the look of their teeth in a radical way, multiple teeth may need to be veneered, ften 6 to 8 front teeth. Prior to treatment photographs, shade and bite registration is carried out, and sometimes a laborotary fabrication of final finish is produced so that patient can see the proposed "Smile-Make over".

Both Bridget and Tony are continuing to pursue their Post Graduate Education and upgrade their skills in the exciting areas of Orthodontics, Myofunctional Therapy, TMD, and OSA.
Bridget travelled to Chicago in March to attend the AAPMD meeting where several International speakers delivered new material on Sleep Apnoea. Afterwards she travelled on to Los Angeles for internship with two of the World leading experts in Myofunctional Therapy, Joy Moeller, and Barbara Greene.
She also attended White Memorial Hospital LA for training in Temporal-Mandibular Jaw dysfunction under the guidance of TMD Director Dr. Joseph Schames. A pilot scheme into which Bridget has been invited, is currently being designed at White Memorial in partnership with UCLA. Its aim is to deliver a fully accredited course to Myofunctional Therapists in areas such as TMD, OSA, while simultaneously involving them in pioneering research work.
She also attended lectures with Dr. Douglas Galen, a leading Maxillo-Facial Surgeon in LA who is recognising and currently addressing the serious negative effects of tongue tie.
She will to LA and attend further advanced training in June with Joy Moeller and Licia Paskay, and will continue to actively seek to improve her knowledge in the above listed fields.
Tony attended a 4 day TMJ course in London in March 2013 with Dr Liz Menzel, a TMD specialist working in Germany.
In September he will commence one year mini residency course in LA with Dr. Bill Hang, Orthodontist, in Functional Jaw Orthopaedics.
Bridget and Tony attended Dr. John Flutter's "Breathing and Posture" course in Germany in March. They are now both qualified to help patients establish positive Nasal Breathing patterns, and eliminate the all too common destructive "mouth breathing" patterns, which are now proven to profoundly and negatively affect ones health.
They travelled to London in June for Dr. John Mew's 4 day Symposium, on a myriad of topics including "Anthropology and the Evolution Man's Skull", "Baby Led Weaning", "Orthotropics, Orthopaedics, and Orthodontics", and of course Myofunctional Therapy.
In November they attended Dr. Derek Mahony's mini residency course in London which not only included further training in Orthopaedics, and Orthodontics, but also incorporated very valuable training in OSA.
